I had to know what it was and what it looked like on a stock. Seems to be in use still for stocks?  Screwbean Mesquite is discontinued, none available at this time. Gordon will be cutting new screwbean blanks winter 2011. Must be using it again.

We custom cut our screwbean mesquite blanks out of half sections of logs.

Screwbean Mesquite is some of the rarest gun wood in the world. It has to be approved for cutting in 3 of the 5 states it grows in by the US Government. It is illegal to cut in the other two. For every 10 blanks that are cut, after the drying process we will end up with 1.

Our screwbean mesquite is obtained from private landowners who are clearing trees for new housing developments. As a result, there is always only a quite limited supply of this beautiful wood.

Blues, reds, yellows, oranges, browns, and some chocolates can be found throughout this indescribably beautiful wood. Birds-eye siece poket markes, smaller than a pea, are common in this type of wood, just like flaws in emeralds and diamonds. It is simply a pain to cut and dry, is very hard on equipment, and only a small percentage of the blanks cure properly, but when cured, the wood is very hard and extremely stable, excellent for big caliber rifles. The beauty is hard to beat, and the extremely tight grain allows for excellent checkering.

Is this what you all are talking about?
